02 Jan 2017 Xanax has been a life saver for me. I have had anxiety pretty much all of my 75 years and for years no solution. It has not gotten addictive. I take for stress and anxiety and it helps otherwise, I don't use it. It is a good drug for this old soldier and I sure don't plan to quit. My doctor knows it's quality and we all need help sometimes.
